Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly planning to welcome their second child at their Montecito estate, Page Six reports. They will welcome their daughter in early summer, royal sources say. 

This baby will make history, as the first royal born in the U.S. Meghan also hoped to welcome Archie at home in the U.K., but after he was a week overdue, Meghan was taken to London’s private Portland hospital, where she gave birth to Archie on May 6, 2019. 

If her last maternity leave was any indication of things to come, Meghan will stay busy. During her leave, she guest-edited British Vogue and finalized a capsule wardrobe for the Smart Works charity.

‘GAME OF THRONES’ TO HIT BROADWAY – (03/31/2021)

George R.R. Martin is bringing Game of Thrones to Broadway. A dramatic stage show spectacular is in development with Martin penning the story along with award-winning playwright Duncan MacMillan (1984) and acclaimed director Dominic Cooke (The Courier), and Simon Painter and Tim Lawson (The Illusionists), in partnership with Kilburn Live producing. 

The production will mark the first time several iconic characters will be brought back; the as-yet-untitled play is set during The Great Tourney at Harrenhal, a contest that took place just 16 years before the events in Game of Thrones. “The play will for the first time take audiences deeper behind the scenes of a landmark event that previously was shrouded in mystery,” reads the play’s official description. “Featuring many of the most iconic and well-known characters from the series, the production will boast a story centered around love, vengeance, madness and the dangers of dealing in prophecy, in the process revealing secrets and lies that have only been hinted at until now.”

While no characters have been announced, it’s expected that young iterations of Ned Stark, Lyanna Stark, Jaime Lannister, Robert Baratheon, Rhaegar Targaryen, Oberyn Martell and Barristan Selmy will likely be among them. Younger characters from the series – such as Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Arya Stark – were not yet born.

Broadway could reopen as soon as September if the vaccine rollout continues as planned.

SETH ROGEN CLARIFIES EMMA WATSON’S BEHAVIOR ON-SET – (03/31/2021)

Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.

Seth Rogen is setting the record straight after an interview he conducted with British GQ was misinterpreted. The actor and director said that Emma Watson did not in fact “storm off set” on This Is the End, after objecting to a scene in which she was to interact with Danny McBride as a cannibal and Channing Tatum on a leash. 

“I mean, I don’t look back on that and think, ‘How dare she do that?’ You know, I think sometimes when you read something, when it comes to life it doesn’t seem to be what you thought it was,” Rogen told the magazine of Watson choosing not to do the scene. “But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship. She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end.” 

Rogen objected to the way Watson’s behavior was characterized by GQ, he noted on Twitter

“Emma Watson did not ‘storm off set’ and it’s s***ty that the perception is that she did,” Rogen wrote. “The scene was not what was originally scripted, it was getting improvised, changed drastically and was not what she agreed to. The narrative that she was in some way uncool or unprofessional is complete bulls**t.” 

Rogen noted that he should have “communicated better” about the anecdote, and added that Watson was “put in an uncomfortable position.” 

“She and I spoke on the night, it was overall a s**ty situation and it must have been hard for her to say something and I’m very happy and impressed that she did,” he continued. “We agreed on her not being in the scene together.”

RACHEL BILSON TALKS RAMI MALEK – (03/31/2021)

Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.

Rachel Bilson is opening up about that time that Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek asked her to delete a throwback shot of them that she’d posted on Instagram. She told Dax Shepard on his “Armchair Expert” podcast: “I had posted a throwback of us from our senior trip to New York, Broadway. We were super-nerdy, just the dorkiest picture of both of us. But I throw it up ’cause it’s funny, and I think it’s so important to be able to make fun of yourself, and he had like a gold chain, and I’m like, ‘Rami where’d you get the gold chain?’ Whatever. So I’m just being funny, we were good friends.”

But she said that he immediately reached out and asked her to take it down. “I was like, ‘Oh, s–t! OK.’ I get really hot and start sweating. I’m all nervous, like, ‘Oh God! What did I do?’ He was a good friend, it’s a funny picture … you know? I don’t take myself that seriously,” Bilson continued.

And then he never reached out to her again. “But I was super-bummed because he was always so nice and we were good friends, and I’m a big fan of not taking yourself seriously, especially at that level of fame and talent,” Bilson explained. “But look, he wants to be super-respected, it’s his thing, so I respected it. I took it down. I was just a little bummed at how it was handled.”
